    Hey guys,

    I’ve recently downloaded Rhino and really want to learn the ins and outs of the program applied to landscape architecture. But sadly, even with a sub to Lynda.com, I can’t find much on the internet on how to learn the program in our field, let alone for architecture. I’ve found land-design and think it looks really cool. But, all I could really find are a couple of youtube videos showing quick tips and such.

    I was just wondering if any of you could point me in any direction on where to learn Rhino. I know it’s up and coming in the field and would really like to immerse myself into it.

    Check the courses at http://blog.visualarq.com/2014/06/20/rhino-visualarq-and-grasshopper-workshops-your-summer-temptation

    SomewhereSomething” (Los Angeles) have many Rhino courses in general (including VisualARQ Rhino plug-in for architecture)

    Here are a bunch of introductory tutorials that will get you up and running.


    Beyond that, trial and error, and the McNeel Forum is here…http://discourse.mcneel.com

    Learning how to use the Grasshopper plug-in for parametric modeling might be the next step.

    Good luck!

    Have you checked out Udemy? They seem to have classes on everything! If you find a good resource please share. I too would like to learn more.

    If you are still in school – force yourself to use it for a project. It is a simple program to learn if you already know AutoCad, especially with the command line. I watched the whole Lynda tutorial series (for a class/grade) but it wasn’t worth it. Just play around and try to make things! Also, I don’t know if you are using the Mac version or windows version – but the Windows version is 100x more powerful (and the Mac version is much harder to grasp and incredibly buggy).

    Rhino is incredibly powerful, but if you only want to use simple forms and shapes it may not be worth the $$. But if you have any interest in computational / parametric design it cannot be beat.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!
